Oscillation (swinging vibration) and lineal (percussion vibration) massagers have been in existence for a long time. After years of observation, the Air Relax saw a need for an alternate vibration type and decide to develop a triplanar (swinging vibration + percussion vibration) massage device.
Comparing to Lineal and oscillation motions, a triplanar vibration has differently designed motor and pulley system. The reason behind its name is because the vibrating massage head does not move only vertically up and down - it also moves horizontally, which makes this masssager unique. Triplanar vibration and lineal vibration can sometimes be associated with a percussion movement, despite they have very different mechanisms.
The linear machine moves straight up and down, and therefore has a hammer-like movement. This would build muscles but will be harsh on the body. When combined with the oscillation vibration motion that moves front-and-back (or side-by-side), the linear motion becomes a lot easier on the joints, bones and the overall effect on the body.
Triplanar vibration technology is a great path on which the linear (percussion) massage device has evolved. Triplanar vibration massage device is built for health maintenance, sports recovery, blood circulation improvement, detox or lymph drainage.
